Thread: Autumn is here...you been flying ?

Beautiful day.

Went down to a private local field today. Had one flight, very chill.

Had a look in the next field and whoopee there is a big flood which only comes some years. So at this very moment I am fitting the floats to my Beaver and Maule and digging out another pure seaplane the name of which escapes me for the moment.

I often get phone calls saying that the insurance/guarantee on my (non existent) boiler has run out. Money wanted.

Living out in the sticks I long ago got used to bathing in in semi cold water heated by a coal fire. Now a gas main has been laid outside my house, so for less than a thousand pound I can have gas on tap. This price for gas up to the meter, no indoor piping, appliances etc.

A few thousand more for the boiler and ancillary fittings. Aged 80 is it worth it?

I live in a 1786 cottage. I have an immersion heater for hot water and a calor gas stove in every room which I can put on when I go into the room and turn off when leave.(No gas main within 3/4 mile!) Approximate annual cost of gas cylinders for heating and cooking £700 I would be interested to hear the average gas bill?!

Two houses next to me are being renovated and connected to the gas. The gas person I had a word with reckoned that for my 1850 three bedroomed house I could get away with £750 per year.

Thread: Where are the 50cc engines?
04/11/2019 21:03:25

Someone on Facebook recently was showing a picture of several YS four stroke engines which he owns which having cost nearly a thousand pounds each new are now unsellable to any one but engine collectors. This is because they are so specialised (for aerobatic flying now replaced totally by electric power) there is no application available for them.

Thread: In The Newsagents ...

There are lots of special interest groups on Face book which I find very interesting.

One of these being unofficial BMFA face book group, which is of great value to any model flyer.

The unofficial tag separates the site from the BMFA face book page, which is less wide ranging.

Not forgetting also Large Model Group face book page.

Thread: LIPO Battery Duration Query
29/10/2019 20:22:24

In my opinion a 5 minute flight from a 2200 3 cell is more than satisfactory on an aerobatic plane like the Easy Street.

If you want 30 minutes from a 2200 you best get a glider. wink

They even used to fly IC planes indoors at Ally Pally many years ago.

About 5 mins is my usual time on my Easy Street, 2200 3 cell. It's a heavy plane against foam models of a similar size. But great flyer.

Thread: Fairey Gannet

Looks sorta streamlined there, KK artist using artistic licence.

The aerobatic boys are using a commercial available contra rotating prop set up using one motor. So developing your own system would seem pointless.

A factory local to me, which processes wood shavings and sawdust, exploded in a catastrophic manner a couple of years back taking with it the lives of several employees. It's called spontaneous combustion.
